Oakhurst Porchfest: What You Need to Know

Oakhurst Porchfest is just two days away!

Time to get organized, if that’s your cup o’ tea.  Here are a few essential things to know to navigate the 220(!) musical acts around the neighborhood over 7 hours this Saturday.

Where/When: All OVER the Decatur neighborhood of Oakhurst on Saturday, October 14 from 12p-7p.  For all the iterations of the 2017 Porchfest map and schedule, CLICK HERE.

How do I get there?:  Walking, Biking, Uber/Lyfting or taking MARTA.  All great ideas!  If you’re still planning to drive your own automobile, that’s ok, but you may want to check out our GUIDE to help you navigate the event and spots to park.

Where do I eat? For a full list of restaurants in Oakhurst, CLICK HERE.  If you want to fully experience the do-it-yourself, bootstraps mentality of the giant neighborhood event, you’ll also find refreshments available from porch hosts and neighbors.  Protip: Many of the neighborhood options are notated in the Porchfest Google Map!

Restrooms: I’m just going to quote the Porchfest website for this one: “Restroom facilities at Porchfest are available three ways: Port-a-Johns in key locations around the neighborhood; participating churches; and neighborhood businesses, who have restrooms available for patrons. Check our event program or online map for specific locations. And please take note: Residential porch hosts are not expected to provide restrooms, so don’t ask.”

What to bring: Not a lot.  Sunscreen is probably a good idea.

The Poster: Have you seen our sweet, sweet poster, courtesy of Methane Studios, yet?  Do you want one?  They are for purchase from the Decatur Arts Alliance located at the Decatur Visitors Center.  $20 a pop.  Proceeds benefit next year’s Porchfest.  More info HERE.

The Spotify Playlist: If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, our SPOTIFY PLAYLIST provides you with hours of music from over 30 Porchfest  musicians!

Hey, is that really everything?!: Eh. Probably not.  But we can almost guarantee if you still have unanswered questions, you can probably find the answer over on the Oakhurst Porchfest website.

Happy ‘Festing!  We’ll see you out there.
